Synopsis

Alan Alda meets several kids who are growing up different and the doctors and the researchers who are trying to mitigate the difficulties they face. Cochlear implants restore some hearing to a profoundly deaf child, the latest augmentative communication technology gives speech to a child without it, and new insights into the fundamental nature of autism may have implications for treatment.
